the arc announcement led me to push announcing the new module: ansible. spot it in the photo above. the full announcement won’t be for a few weeks after videos and docs and firmwares are completed.
- no 5v required
- 4 x TR output
- 4 x CV output
- 2 x key input
- 2 x TR input (clock/reset/etc)
- USB host for arc, grid, midi
- ii (i2c) connectivity
this module is hugely modal. plug in an arc and it does arc things. plug in a grid and play grids. and midi.
details and video and documentation coming, but in summary via ambiguous feature-phrases:
arc - level setting with range setting and note quantization, polyrhythmic clock pulse outputs, patterns and sequencing, friction and momentum physics.
grid - multiple applications to toggle between.
midi - basic interfacing and arps and more.
furthermore, with no USB device attached the module will continue running the last-used application, but is toggle-able into Teletype expander mode. Up to four Ansibles can be attached via a backside ii ribbon-- giving TT the ability to manage 20 CV outs and 20 TR outs in addition to TR and key inputs.
all firmware will be open-source.
expected retail is $280.
mid-august. no pre-order.
update - will ship when the arc is ready.
